They’re all at it. Shops, cinemas, restaurants… Offering deals to the few, paid for by the many.
It’s annoying but most deals are online but easy to find, even on a smartphone. Sitting down to a bite to eat in town? Type in the name of the restaurant and ‘voucher’ and see what comes up. No burger is worth £14, (Byron Burger), but if we can bag a two-for-one offer, it’s not so bad.
Many favour Primark over Gap when it comes to price. But the Gap+ App offers daily discounts and the heads up on promotions that sometimes means rock bottom bargains.
Then there are the legal loopholes. Money blogger SkintDad exposed a way to get half price cinema tickets and dinners out. By taking one day’s travel insurance for just £1.05 on
comparethemarket.com, he was able to sign up for Meerkat Movies and Meals. Simples.
It feels wrong but remember, you can’t scam a scammer. Even a legal one.
